Not only blockchain We have coinbase and many more But the thing is How we maintaning with safety and secure to our wallet thats only matters. We have secure with two factor authentication for wallet and keep it safe. else others way is save in paper wallet dude.

Hello :-)

The safest way to keep bitcoins is paper wallets. You can have multiple copies in multiple location with no threat from hackers.

but that may be not what the OP want. cold storage for long term how about short term? Electrum would be suitable

There is a threat. Currently, there is no easy way to spend it without risk of getting it compromised. Mycelium does have a cold storage feature but the coins might be hacked during the spending process. If you are going to use an old computer or raspberry pi, you are better off getting an Electrum client and operate it both offline and online. Just copy the seed multiple times and you would have redundancy.

IMO the safest way to keep bitcoins is multiple paper wallets stored in safe locations like multiple bank vaults, the possibility of your funds being compromised is minimal since even if a bank is robbed the possibility of your codes being used before you use another copy to load them and send them away is relatively small, Hardware wallets are very expensive IMO and have the same vulnerabilities as saving your BTC in a computer.

Hardware is pretty hard to beat as far as safe storage that you can really access.  Paper wallet is a good option aswell if done right.

One thing I would do is not have a paperwallet with bitcoin all over it.  I would photoshop it or edit it somehow and put something like 'Link to family vacation 2014".... something a thief would care less about. 

Keep some in hot storage in case you need it.  But by far make sure majority is in cold wallet or hardware wallet.
